Much like some of those who are involved in the process of trying to realize, I have an intellectual understanding of no-self, believe it to be true, but have not internalized the knowledge so that my framework has integrated it. The reason that I started on the path of meditation is that the Buddha has invited us to experience the true nature of reality ourselves, rather than take his word for it. This book also invites us to have the experience or at least gives us an introduction to the pointing method.

If you are at a point where you are ready to hear the message which this book imparts, you may certainly enter the gateless gate and gain unity with who you really are. Each one describing the awakening of 21 persons who have found what they were looking for. It can certainly help anyone attain liberation just by following the path taken by these fortunate people. Buy On Amazon Hi Elena, I had arrived at the conclusion that there is no self by studying western philosophy and working through arguments in philosophy of mind and the problem of identity.
I spent nearly a decade on this. In the end I had no doubt that self is an illusion, but I had yet to see it. Life continued to play out as if there was an entity behind the wheel controlling everything. Your book Gateless Gatecrashers was the key that made the shift happen. I just wanted to tell you how much this has transformed everything. I had not even imagined that peace could be like this. To see that everything is part of one cosmic movement, not driven by separate entities, is truly worthy of the word liberation.
I saw it on Amazon, ordered it as an ebook and started reading it. One night, while reading it in bed in the moonlight, there was all at once no me. Nothing else changed. The moonlight continued to stream in through the window, the cat continued to purr next to me, my breath kept going. Utterly simple. And somehow it rests differently within. No doubt there is further to go, this is but a step along the way. I highly recommend the book and the website to those who may be interested.
Go ahead. Paul I had a 30 year long spiritual journey that ended at the gate. I hung around over at the Liberation Unleashed website for awhile, read the threads, and started softening up to the process. I was just about to go on to one of the boards and request a guide but I decided to read the book beforehand just to try to calm the fears a little more. I got through with the first interview in the book, got up from the table to stretch my legs, and suddenly I got it-the cosmic joke. I laughed for quite a while.
The transition is so subtle. I never had a chance to fear. The shift just snuck up on me. Life is so much simpler now. Get your copy here:.

Is there not a Self? Set up a giveaway. Similar lines of thought I had a couple other thoughts, which I will add as a reply to this post. I find it easy to believe such could be possible.
